Hello Stephen,

I really enjoyed reading your article as it intelligently (I can only assume your statistics are accurate as I am less adept at procuring such data) and articulately expressed what I increasingly feel; something about so much space, relatively few people and a number of other positive Canadian traits I could only vaguely begin to list. Bearing all this in mind I am lead to believe that we are squandering greater, long-term opportunities for individuality for short-term goals of a rather generic nature.

I've been in Vietnam ten months and the sometimes brutal honesty of life here seems preferable in many ways; I have less fear of criminals or police and people are generally friendlier and enjoy themselves in a more honest way. To say nothing about the cost of living in general. Fears of health and political issues are, day to day, for your average person (and especially expatriates) pure hyperbole.

I am curious, though, what you might see as solutions to our malaise and how you—if in fact you are still residing in Canada—reconcile yourself to living in such a place?

Thanks, Yuri Doric
